  1. Odd art style here: notice that the Mountie’s hat, coat, one hand and face, the bad guy’s hat and hands and the woman’s hand are outlined in black, but the woman’s face is not. Black outlines are “comic book style” (since the drawings were black & white and were coloured afterwards) but painted covers (just look at various other paperback and pulp covers on this site) generally were not. Not sure what Stahr was up to here.

  2. Actually, if you click on the Paul Stahr link, you’ll see he does the black-outline thing occasionally on other covers but mostly does not. Must be some reason for it.
